Finally switched over my Baja 5b to high voltage savox (throttle) and Hitec(D845wp ) servos and using a Futaba 4PV radio. Im looking to buy a compact hardcase LIPO battery. Can anyone tell me what kind of run time to expect with a 2000-3000 mah lipo vs a 4000-5000 mah. My goal is to keep it hardcase and relatively small in size. With a milion different brands and sizes im not sure which way to go with this. Any input is aporeciated.

This is what I havr in mind;:

U won't find a hardcase
what will fit in the rx box👎....i can get 3-4 tanks atleast from my rx lipos 👍
And 140c is way to high for a rx lipo...u only need 10-20c....and the biggest mah what will fit in the box 👍
Atm mini i run a 6.6v life in my baja...only because my £75 savox throttle servo is only 6v rated.....its this one

Great. Well that gives me an idea at least. I have a 6.6 2100 LIFe pack in mine as well. Works well for the most part. I was lookkng specificslly for the hardcase becsause I don't know of any LIPO that will fit in the box so I was going to keep it outside of the box...i figured something durable would be best. I do have the taller box from killerrc and it makes a huge difference. Unfortunately your still limited on room and I haven't found a decent size lipo that will fit. The taller lid from killer rc is about an inch taller if that helps you any. Posted a couple pics.

Be careful with the second option I bought one and the small red led detached after 4 or 5 times out with my truck.
